Sunscreen Spills

8-16-16 1.jpgIn this insane heat wave that we are in the middle in, everyone is reach for their thermostats and sunscreen, hoping to provide a little relief from the scorching weather outside.  Apply sunscreen when the sun is extremely strong is always a great idea, but getting it on your furniture and floor can really put a damper on things. However, never fear, because today, we are going over some quick and easy methods to get sunscreen out of just about anything in your home, even if it seems impossible at first glance.

Out of all the things that you can spill sunscreen on in your home, spilling it on tile is the best.  As with other stains, wipe it up as soon as you can, and then reach for a sponge and bucket.  Fill the bucket with warm or hot water, add in a splash of ammonia (it helps to cut through water-resistant liquids, such as sunscreen), and start to sponge the area.  Once all of the sunscreen is removed, go back with some more water and a dry cloth (to get the ammonia out) and you’re done.  Now, how’s that for easy cleaning?

Now, all things in life are not perfect, and you may find yourself with a sunscreen mess on your leather furniture.  While your first reaction may be to scream, you can easily clean up the mess without a stain with little effort.  First, dab the area with paper towels to get as much of the sunscreen up as you can (do not rub it in).  Then grab a bucket, and fill it with a solution of some mild soap and warm water.  Once you have it all sudsy, grab a sponge, and swish the mixture around on your leather furniture.  Wipe it dry, and then apply a little bit of leather conditioner.  That’s it, and the sunscreen is gone with your furniture looking like nothing ever happened!

With the right attitude and a little bit of know-how, you can get the stain out of just about anything.  However, for those times that seem like it’s impossible, know that you can always rely on Bayside Carpet Cleaning to get the job done.  And with a money-back guarantee AND a special 10% off discount when you use the promo code “August”, you have nothing to lose!  Give us a call today for a free in-home estimate!
